Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot make short film on the climate crisis

This is not a drill. My name is Greta Thunberg. We are living in the beginning
of a mass extinction. Our climate is breaking down. Children like me are giving up
their education to protest. But we can still fix this. You can still fix this. To survive, we need
to stop burning fossil fuels. But this alone will not be enough. Lots of solutions are talked about. But what about the solution
that is right in front of us? I’ll let my friend George explain. There is a magic machine
that sucks carbon out of the air costs very little and builds itself. It’s called… a tree. A tree is an example
of a natural climate solution. Mangroves, peat bogs, jungles,
marshes, seabeds, kelp forests, swamps, coral reefs, they take carbon out of the air
and lock it away. Nature is a tool we can use
to repair our broken climate. These natural climate solutions
could make a massive difference. Pretty cool, right? But only if we also leave fossil fuels
in the ground. Here’s the crazy part… right now we are ignoring them. We spend 1000 times more
on global fossil fuels subsidies than natural based solutions. Natural climate solutions get just 2% of all the money used
on tackling climate breakdown. This is your money. It is your taxes and your savings. Even more crazy right now when we need nature the most, we’re destroying it faster than ever. Up to 200 species are going extinct
every single day. Much of the arctic ice is gone. Most of our wild animals have gone. Much of our soil has gone. So what should we do? What should YOU do? It’s simple… We need to PROTECT RESTORE and FUND. PROTECT Tropical forests are being cut down at the rate of
30 football pitches a minute. Where Nature is doing something vital we must protect it. RESTORE Much of our planet has been damaged. But Nature can regenerate and we can help ecosystems bounce back. FUND We need to stop funding things
that destroy nature and pay for things that help it. It is that simple PROTECT RESTORE FUND This can happen everywhere; Many people have already begun
using natural climate solutions. We need to do it on a massive scale. You can be part of this. VOTE for people who defend nature. SHARE this video. Talk about this. All around the world
there are amazing movements fighting for nature. JOIN them. Everything counts. What you do, counts. [THIS FILM WAS MADE FROM RECYCLED FOOTAGE] [WITH NO FLIGHTS

  1. ?That girl apparently has no idea what developing countries are like and that people dream of living in a country with better opportunities and living conditions considering that not everyone lives in developed countries. It's funny to know that they use children for personal purposes. It would sound more credible if it came from the world's indigenous peoples, especially from Latin America.

  2. The man says real words, but Greta just say that we need to change and, what we need stop to do. But the man tell the solution and he knows where he talk about it.

  3. Greta: What should we do ?

    Me: Uhmm…. uhmm… Have you finished your homework? Have you revised for your Chemistry test ?

  4. Why don't people in the us make a change by stop using paper money and destroying trees why not use plastic money like Canada.?

  5. Your problem is not climatic your problem is psychological. If you are scared you should look for a psychiatrist and not spread your psychosis to the whole world. You are sick and you should seek help. All the theater you are doing next to you only makes your disease worse.
    You are a lost teenager who is looking for acceptance.
    On earth it has never been better in the whole history of civilization. Why are you denying the prosperity that we have in Europe to African children.
    They also want to have something to eat and go to school every day.
    Without industry this is impossible. You are a spoiled child who has never known poverty.
    You have never been hungry in your life.
    Only in this way can I explain why you say such nonsense. I know what poverty is. My first payout in my life was $ 20. That's why I'm afraid of people like you. I don't want any rich, overindulge children who have no idea about poverty to save the world.

    Stop doing this you are a manipulated child, the poorest I will suffer because of you.

  6. Species are not going extinct only because of climate change ..The most dominant reason for extinction is the fact we are robbing many species of their habitats … That is not climate change . In many other cases they are simply being hunted to extinction.

  7. Well Greta if you want to fix the environment go to school and learn so when you grow up you can be educated enough to know more about the envirment
